McFadgon was 6 of 13 from the floor. The other perimeter players combined to go 5 for 19. Scooter went 2 of 4 from 3-point range. The other perimeter players combined to go 0 for 9.
When they weren't missing shots, Tennessee's perimeter players were losing the ball in one way or another. Watson (6), Winchester (3), Bradshaw (3) and Asumnu (1) combined for 13 of UT's 21 turnovers.
The paltry production from Tennessee's perimeter players could be forgiven if they were working the ball inside to 6-foot-10 Brandon Crump, but that wasn't the case. Crump managed just six shot attempts vs. MSU, making three.
Until the Vols get some perimeter scoring from someone other than Scooter, opponents are going to continue smothering Crump on the inside and leaving McFadgon to win games by himself. That's a lot to expect of one guy.
Just ask Casey Clausen.
